Coastline and Outback
Feel the spray from the sea along the Great Ocean Road, then taste the red dust of Australia's Red Centre visiting Uluru, Kata Tjuta, Kings Canyon and Alice Springs.
This is a ride not for the faint hearted. Highlighting the very best of what the ‘outback’ has on offer, this tour takes us on the iconic and memorable Great Ocean Road, then adds the best of the outback in the centre of Australia.
From Melbourne we head out along the Mornington Peninsula to cross Port Phillip Bay. We join the coast at Bells Beach, then ride the Great Ocean Road all the way to the Twelve Apostles and Port Campbell for our first night.
The next morning we’re off to Adelaide for 2 nights for a good look around. After a full day exploring the city, we travel via Port Augusta and on to Coober Pedy with its underground mining and unique accommodation. From there, on a very long haul day, we’ll reach Uluru and Kata Tjuta. Here you’ll be enthralled by the vastness of the outback, the panoramic views, the colours and the colourful and artistic locals. Other activities include camel tours, brilliant sunrise and sunset tours, Aboriginal talks, a Sounds of Silence dinner, Field of Lights and lots of walking if you feel up to it.
The weather is ideal from March to June and September to November, making it easier and safer to do some walking. The colours of ‘the rock’ are most vibrant and you’re more likely to see the hidden surprises of Uluru, like waterfalls, flowers, reptiles and animals in the sunrise and sunset hours of the day.
Two days later we’ll head to the dramatic Kings Canyon. Bring your hiking boots, climb to the rim and take in a vista so grand it will take your breath away (it could be the actual climb that does that). Next it’s off to Alice Springs. This is a real eye-opener of a town in the middle of nowhere and well worth exploring the local pubs with their laconic Australian locals.
After Alice it’s a straight run back to Coober Pedy, Port Augusta and back to the Great Ocean Road. This road has to be done twice… once for the magnificent scenery on the way up, the second for all the corners and the actual ride itself.
